The Anatolian Trail: An Indo-European Adventure

Preliminary development of a video game on Proto-Indo-European and ancient Indo-European languages and cultures.

In this proposal, we request an NEH Digital Projects for the Public Discovery Grant to develop preliminary work on the video game The Anatolian Trail: An Indo-European Adventure, which will be designed to engage a broad audience on the scholarship of Proto-Indo-European and ancient Indo-European (IE) languages and cultures. The game will be set in the age of the Indo-Europeans, a prehistoric tribe that split into many of the cultures of Eurasia from the past 5000 years. By battling ancient monsters from IE folklore, gaining blessings from the gods of the IE pantheon, and even conversing with the locals in their native tongue, players will be able to experience first-hand the results of two centuries of scholarship.
